|As reported yesterday there was no search of recovered material today as NYPD and Medical Examiner’s staff were not even on the site.
There was activity.
The manhole inside the gate inside the south west corner of the site was emptied.
Considerable material was removed including stones and concrete the size of boulders.
The team is eager to search the material as soon as it clears DEP because there is a good chance that WTC material and possible remains will be found.
The most important discovery today was the manhole cover at this location.
It was found in pieces near the bottom of the manhole.
What this proves is that the cover was breeched when the Towers fell.
There is no way that this manhole was ever looked at during the original search.
It is one thing to overlook a manhole where you did not think remains could be located (outside the scope of the search)
This proves that there was not even a visual inspection of all of the manholes on and around the site.
Again we would like to see the map of all of the manholes on and around the site as well as a detailed account of how each of them was searched.
If the recovery effort was completed ahead of schedule and under budget where is the detailed report of what constituted completion.
In regards to the service road we have been by someone who worked at the site during the initial recovery that the Department of Design and Construction was told on numerous occasions that the road needed to be excavated and searched prior to it being paved over.
These concerns were ignored without explanation.
It doesn’t take a genius to determine why this decision was made.
We need to demand that this be looked into and we need to keep the pressure on to have the road excavated now.
The recovery effort will continue tomorrow if the weather permits.
We will keep you posted.
